New Moon Inspired Stevie Nicks, Who Knew?

According to the press release for her new album called In Your Dreams, Stevie Nicks was inspired by New Moon! Laura is a HUGE Stevie Nicks fan and is jumping up and down like crazy!

Rock ‘n Roll’s reigning queen Stevie Nicks will be releasing her highly anticipated new CD “In Your Dreams” on May 3rd, it was announced today by Reprise Records. This will be Nicks’ first CD of new material since the release of her Grammy nominated “Trouble in Shangri-La” ten years ago. “In Your Dreams” was written and recorded at Nicks’ Los Angeles home and is co-produced by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard. Nicks and Stewart
co-wrote seven of the album’s thirteen songs.

“I had written a song in Brisbane, Australia when I was on tour with Fleetwood Mac in 2009 called ‘Moonlight — A Vampire’s Dream’ which was inspired by the ‘New Moon’ film. When I finished writing that song, which came together really quickly, I knew the time was right to start recording. We had a core group of five people who were at the heart of the creation of ‘In Your Dreams.’ Dave and myself, my longtime friend and musical director, Waddy Wachtel, and my girls, Sharon Celani and Lori Nicks. It was a perfect blend,” commented Nicks.

“This was one of the most extraordinary experiences I’ve had making a record. It is the first album that I have had this kind of collaboration since the making of Rumours. Dave created a situation where I could be
totally creative and focused on writing songs and making music. I cannot remember ever having this much fun making a record. Writing the songs and recording them in my home studio was the key element in how this music turned out. It made the whole process seem very similar to how we used to work back in the day,” she concluded.

The first single “Secret Love” written by Nicks is currently on iTunes. “It was 1976 and Fleetwood Mac was opening for Peter Frampton at the time. It was written about a forbidden relationship — not Peter and I,”
laughed Nicks. “I always knew that one day I was going to record the song.”

Nicks is currently gearing up to join forces with fellow rocker Rod Stewart for the 16 city Heart & Soul Tour, one of the most anticipated music events of the year… The first show is scheduled on March 20th in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Stevie Nicks is a multi Grammy Award winner and Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Her extraordinary career as a solo artist, songwriter, live performer and member of Fleetwood Mac is legendary. Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” was one of the biggest selling albums of all time. She has penned such Mac classics as “Landslide,” “Dreams,” “Gold Dust Woman” and “Rhiannon.” As a solo artist, beginning with the five time platinum debut “Bella Donna,” her solo hits include unforgettable singles such as “Edge of Seventeen,” “Leather and Lace” and “Stand Back.”

So any other Stevie Nicks fans out there? What do you think about Stevie possibly being a Breaking Dawn soundtrack artist?

  8. Would love to see something from her on the Breaking Dawn sound track. LOVE HER!!!!

  9. im going 2 be dumb and ask what is her music like?

    • Marie,
      Rock & Roll with heart & soul. You must have heard Landslide, Dreams, Stand Back, Leather and Lace, and Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around many, many times.

    • Christi,
      Saw Stevie perform Beauty and the Beast at the Borgata in 2007. A hush came over the crowd and tears flowed everywhere.

    Stevie On the BD ost would make me *ded*! Omg that would rock balls!

  11. Christi Reid says:

    Stevie Nicks has a truly amazing song that I think would have been great on any of the Twilight soundtracks. It is called Beauty And The Beast. This doesn’t have anything to do with the Disney cartoon. This is one incredible song that has meant so much to me for nearly 3 decades. The lyrics are intoxicating. Definitely try to listen to it if you can. You will LOVE it!

    • Would love to have some Stevie Nicks inspiration on Breaking Dawn’s Soundtrack. I’ve always been a fan of Stevie and Fleetwood Mac since my mom and dad played them when I was young. She has a voice that just draws you in…so it would go along witn the storyline nicely. I can’t wait to hear her song that was inspired by New Moon!!!

    • Yes, Edge of Seventeen is one of my favorites as well as Leather and Lace.

    Beauty and the Beast Lyrics Stevie Nicks

    You’re not a stranger to me
    And you are something to see
    You don’t even know how to please
    You say a lot but you’re unaware how to leave

    My darling lives in a world that is not mine
    An old child misunderstood out of time
    Timeless is the creature who is wise
    And timeless is the prisoner in disguise

    Oh who is the beauty who the beast
    Would you die of grieving when I leave
    Two children too blind to see
    I would fall in your shadow I believe

    My love is a man who’s not been tamed
    Oh my love lives in a world of false pleasure and pain
    We come from difference worlds we are the same my love
    I never doubted your beauty I’ve changed
    I never doubted your beauty I’ve changed

    Changed who is the beauty
    Where is my beast (my love)
    There is no beauty
    Without my beast (my love)

    Who is the beauty
    Who my love
    Ahhh
    Oh la bete la bete
    Where is my beast

    My beauty my beauty
    My beautiful beautiful beautiful
    Beautiful beast

  13. I love Edge of Seventeen!!!

  23. You are and always have been a class act-I’m really excited about this! =)

  24. hello….

  25. Love Stevie Nicks. Her song styling is perfect for the Saga. Ethereal, kind of other-worldly.

  26. I saw her in concert this past summer (2010) and she commented while on stage a couple times about how much she loved the books.

  27. I hope Stevie Nicks will be part of the Breaking Dawn music. I love all the Twilight soundtracks and I have always loved Stevie Nicks. Keep singing girl! Glad your back!

  28. how fantastic i cant wait to hear it. love both twillight and miss stevie.

  29. I have been a Stevie fan for years. I have seen her in concert on the Mirage Tour with Fleetwood Mac in 1983 and twice when she released her solo records. Believe it or not, there are many older Twilight fans (it is NOT just a teenage love story but a story about unconditional love which people of ALL ages can relate to) and they would LOVE to have her as part of the BD ost!!

  30. I have always adored Stevie, even tried to dress like her in the 80’s. Yes, would love to see her on a Breaking Dawn soundtrack! Do it!

  31. she would be great for a camio singing at their wedding.

  32. This is a great idea! Stevie nicks is the best female singer and I love the Twilight Saga!

  33. AWESOME!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Stevie Nicks! Her music is just amazing and I can not wait for this cd to come out!! And to think, my favorite books and movies inspired this!

  34. This is so cool ! I knew Twilight inspired millions of us but this is cool.

  35. Linda Jordan says:

    Totally awesome! Summit..please put Stevie Nicks Song on Breaking Dawn’s soundtrack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Wow! Awesome cant wait to hear it!

  37. kp-twilighter77980 says:

    sweet!

  38. Wow reading this gave me chills. I cannot wait to hear the song and the new album. Stevei Nicks is amazing and to have the Twilight connection is icing on the cake!

  39. There are some interesting time limits in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them middle to heart. There may be some validity but I’ll take maintain opinion till I look into it further.

  40. The track on Stevie’s new CD that is New Moon inspired is called Moonlight(A vampire’s Dream)and its about the part where Edward left Bella and she sat for months and months in the chair looking out the window…

  41. Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! My idol ha been inspired by such a terrible series!!!! Say it isn’t so!!!! Stevie why?!!! v.v Twilight isn’t about vampires, it’s about a desperate human falling for a fairy with fangs! Remember folks! Vampires suck blood, not c*ck.
